Robotics: Tinkering with Circuits and Robots (Pre-K to 1st Grade)
Does your young designerâ€™s imagination take them on new adventures? Are they budding inventors and engineers that like to build with LEGOs? Have they ever wanted to add sounds to their creations, and make them move? Make sense of the world this summer in the MODAâ€™s UX and Robotics: Tinkering with Circuits and Robots camp!
Every morning of this camp will be filled with creative exploration as campers investigate circuitry and robotics using a variety of design and STEAM tools. From littleBits, color-coded modules that snap together magnetically to create simple circuits, to Bristlebots, robots created from toothbrushes and vibrating motors, campers will engineer real world circuits while practicing electrical safety. Campers will also use squishy circuits, Makey Makeyâ„¢ , and Kâ€™Nexâ„¢ in center-based learning activities to further their understanding of circuitry and engineering concepts.
This camp will also introduce each camper to robotics using the LEGO WeDo kits. Throughout the week, campers will work on a variety of LEGO WeDo builds each day and learn the basic principles of coding and programming.
Enrolled in this camp before? No problem! We'll pick up where you left off so your camper can keep making and learning or visit museumofdesign.org/campmoda to check out our newest camps such as Design like an Engineer: Project Playground 2.0 and Digital Building Blocks: Adventures in Blockly!
This is a week long camp for rising pre-K (4 yrs) to 1st grade students that runs from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily. This camp is being held at First Presbyterian, 1328 Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA 30309.
